Show dataflow impact with Data Lineage & Impact Analysis.

Is Alteryx looking at implementing some kind of feature to provide a preview of impacted objects (lineage view) & understand dataconnections' changes impact before it's implemented ?



  • Help users understand the ramifications of any changes they make on other cards, DataFlows, or DataFusions.
  • Search and explore data lineage.
  • Easily find broken dataflows.
  • Quickly determine the impact of dataconnection changes on the rest of your Site, Collections, Application etc.


DOMO has this well done in their platform, check it out rather than me explaining here..

Search for Data Lineage & Impact Analysis.

Hey @Franz - Agree with you that this would be super useful.


Some of this already exists in Alteryx Connect - you can see the lineage view of a workflow in the "Nexus" view in Connect - and I fully agree with you that there's a lot that could be done with lineage & impact analysis going forward in Connect / Analytics Hub. for a video on Connect.
